Nashville Lifestyles: Imogene and Willie

A couple of weeks ago I shot with photographer Tec Petaja for the clothing store Imogene and Willie (both whom I have mentioned in past blogs) for the October issue of Nashville Lifestyles. I worked as a model on this shoot, but the clothes were sooo fabulous that I had to share...

Go get fitted for some jeans!

If you are wondering where we are....

In between our posts, please follow us on Twitter! Sometimes we are working on cool jobs and we are itching to show you some pics but the lag time between doing the shoot and actually getting some images can be loooooonnnngg. Especially if we do the shoot for a magazine or cd cover. So, follow us at:

Monday, I'm doing a bit of styling for Martina McBride and Trace Adkins, so you'll definitely want to check the twitpics for up to the minute updates. And today, you can get a behind-the-scenes first look at a shoot that I'm doing for Fringe Magazine with model, Salome Steinmann (Make Me A Supermodel cast member).

And just because I like pretty things, here is a purty image to feast your eyes upon:
Amanda Ramirez

This is a teaser from a magical shoot we did with Amanda Ramirez, of the band Johnny Swim, who also happens to be the new catalog model for Louis Vouitton 2010. Yes, you heard right, LV, and yes, she's from right here in Nashville. The glam squad getting this girl ready and photographed was none other than, Lorena Lopez (Hair/MUA), Reid Rolls (photog) myself (style maven), Becky Fluke (moral support and great music video film maker) and Chad and Connie (assistants extraordinaire)!

Photographer spotlight: Tec Petaja


I met Tec for the first time while he was shooting my friend's wedding.  Not only is his wedding photography the best I have ever seen he is also an amazing lifestyle photographer (above is one of my favorite pics!) I have also had the pleasure of shooting with him, personally, and I can tell you he is amazingly fresh and has a great perspective on shooting the person exactly as they should be shot.  

If you like... check out TecPetaja.com and hire him for your next shoot!

Model Spotlight: Kojii Helnwein

I just got back from a packed weekend in LA where I spent much of the time styling a fashion story with Photog Reid Rolls and Model Kojii Helnwein. Our story was focused on the new silhouette of the season which you've no doubt noticed us blogging about already. The bold shouldered, menswear inspired fashions boasting pleated trousers and splashes of neon.

Introducing Kojii Helnwein, who you may recognize from the current season of Project Runway and the new take-off, Models of the Runway, as our model! This is a teaser photo from our day of shooting. She was a city girl doing city girl things...in style. You can learn more about Kojii and her modeling career by clicking HERE...and also about her musical career as well. She knows how to rock a mic and a guitar!

All in all, I had a great time in LA with Reid AND made a few new friends! You can follow Kojii on TWITTER....and follow her BLOG. For more information on wardrobe styling for yourself or your magazine you can contact me thru our WEBSITE.

Behind The Scenes: Britten

Last week I had the opportunity to style one of my very dear friends Britten.  Britten is a Nashville singer/songwriter but I almost hesitate to put him in that box considering he might just be one of the most talented voices I have ever heard. Drawing one of the most enthusiastic crowds in Nashville, Britten is also a class A crooner. He is more than soulful, has a ridiculous range and isn't too hard on the eyes either. I was mostly excited about this shoot because I am for sure one of his number one fans (in case you couldn't tell hehe). 

Doesn't he look fly?
